Youth Expert Coach Elected to Director of Coach Development
Stevensville – SWM Rec Soccer is proud to announce the election of Douglas DeCamp to its Leadership Team. DeCamp, a software engineer and local business owner, and longtime youth coach, accepted the position this week.
In this position he will look to encourage and guide our Athletes and Coaches to the appropriate level of play and instruction. To do this he will introduce some metrics to measure the progress of our Coaches and Athletes throughout their involvement with SWM Rec.
DeCamp is currently in the throes of youth hockey as a Coach, at the most beloved, Garden Ice Arena. Prior to joining our community, DeCamp coached both Recreational and Club soccer teams for 9 years. In addition to coaching youth World Series baseball and advanced level hockey.
I know Douglas both personally and professionally, and I am elated to have him join our team. His addition helps set SWM Rec apart and his expertise will be incredibly valuable to our community. Please, when you see him or his wife Michelle or son Chase, tell them thank you for lending a hand to our soccer community.
Welcome to the team DeCamp Family!
Love to everyone this beautiful SW Michigan weekend.
